Seo Ye Ji's popularity skyrocketed after landing the role of the cold-hearted Ko Moon Young in It's Okay to Not Be Okay.

Millions of her fans were mesmerized by her visuals and unique charisma alongside her on-screen chemistry with Kim Soo Hyun.

Apart from her impeccable acting skills, another striking feature of the actress that struck fans the most is her incredibly slim physique.

Seo Ye Ji's 'Ant Waist'

As seen in some of the episodes of It's Okay to Not Be Okay, Seo Ye Ji dons stunning designer outfits that primarily emphasize her teeny tiny waist.

Known as the "ant waist" by most Kpop and K-drama fans, this refers to someone who has an incredibly small waist that resembles an ant's waist.

Aside from Seo Ye Ji, the late KARA member, Goo Hara has a 20-inch waistline, while APINK's Naeun is only 22 inches.

As for the 32-year-old actress, she once became a trending topic on social media after she appeared in one episode of It's Okay to Not be Okay, wearing the iconic two-piece pink matchy outfit with a crop top and high waisted skirt.

Viewers and netizens could help but notice her very tiny waistline, and some even claimed that it might be edited through digital retouching; however, it's all in the genes.

According to Koreaboo, her mom and older sister have a similar physique as hers as they both worked as flight stewardesses.

"My mother worked as an airline stewardess for a long time. My big sister was also a stewardess, although she's not anymore. Everyone on my mom's side of the family are tall and thin," she said, adding that being thin "runs in the family."

However, she doesn't only rely on her genetics and keeps her figure in a top-top shape through exercise.

Interestingly, aside from this, Seo Ye Ji's workout routine also included ballet, and she was able to showcase her ballet skills in the 2013 comedy sitcom Potato Star 2013QR3.

Besides ballet, another form of workout that highlights dancing and movement is pole dancing, which requires a lot of gripping and twisting the body by creating movements and shapes.
